Dental Implants Guide
Milions of people experience difficulties associated with missing teeth. These difficulties can severely undermine your self-confidence and quality of life.
Missing teeth can compromise your health, eating habits, speech and appearance. When teeth are lost, bone loss usually occurs, which in turn will affect your denture. This can result in the denture becoming loose, which may cause difficulty in stabilization of the denture, decreasing chewing ability, and over time, deterioration of the jaw structure.
What can a Denturist do?
The preferred method of tooth replacement is the dental implant. In short, dental implants are a substitute for tooth roots, and form a stable foundation for permanent replacements of teeth. They also act as a support for full and partial dentures, since the implants integrate with the bone to act as an anchor for replacement teeth. This process is called osteointegration.
Why are Dental Implants a good choice?
Implant retained dentures are more natural feeling than most types of regular dentures. Implants are a proven restoration option with a long, clinical history and an excellent success rate. Dental implants can be used to replace all missing teeth. Clients who have chosen implant-supported teeth report that they are happy and comfortable for the first time since the loss of their natural teeth.
